Charlos Cove was settled about 1760 and named after one of the first Acadian settlers, Charles Richard. Other village pioneers were Joseph Richard, Oliver Fleming and John Evory (Avery).[1]

Charles Richard petitioned for land about 1799. Other village pioneers, Joseph Richard, Oliver Fleming and John Avery also petitioned for land.[2] A survey dated May 20th, 1800 shows houses and buildings belonging to them on ungranted land. In 1809, a survey of land was made for Joseph Richard Sr., Oliver Fleming, Joseph Richard, Jr. and the heirs of John Avery
